Alright Republicans, You Wanted Donald Trump, Now You F*cking Got Him

Never in my life have I been embarrassed to be an American; however, at least for now, I am. I still cannot believe I live in a country that elected a self-admitted, pathologically dishonest sociopath and traitor as president. A man who’s so mentally unhinged he had to have his Twitter access taken away from him in the days leading up to the election out of fear that he might say something that would hurt his chances at victory.



While I never said it couldn’t happen, in the back of my mind I always had enough faith in Americans that I never thought it would.

But you know what, fine. Republicans, you wanted Donald Trump, well, you f*cking got him.

It kills me to think of the fear millions of Americans are feeling right now, but there’s also another part of me that says, you know what, I’m glad these Trump people are getting exactly what they wanted. If these knuckle-dragging, vile, racist, bigoted, ignorant bottom-feeding morons want a Trump presidency — a real Trump presidency (not those bullshit lies he sold during his campaign), then that’s exactly what they’re about to get — sponsored by Russia.

While all these Trump supporters celebrate electing the most shameful candidate in this country’s history, they’re about to learn that they won’t be able to “meme” their way through just how awful the next four years are going to be. There’s no conspiracy blog that’s going to be able to spin the disaster that’s about to engulf the United States. There’s not going to be any denying what an absolute embarrassment Donald Trump is going to be for this country.

The GOP put party over country… that’s fine. They elected the man who’s going to spend the next four years not only wreaking havoc in this country, but destroying their party, as well. If they thought Trump the “GOP presidential nominee” was a dumpster fire — just wait.

As the saying goes, “be careful what you wish for.” Well, that’s never been more true than right now.

For decades the Republican party has pandered to the worst parts of our society. The racists, the bigots, the prejudiced, the hateful, the ignorant — and they finally won. After over a half century of appealing to some of the most deplorable people in this country, Republicans elected the exact type of candidate people like David Duke, the KKK and white nationalists have been hoping for.

Donald Trump is the culmination of decades of right-wing hate, lies, conspiracies and propaganda finally succeeding. A person who is such an unbelievable disgrace, even his own party did its best to keep as distant from him as possible because they were terrified of what aligning too closely with him might do to their own careers.

The GOP elected a man it didn’t want as its nominee, was ashamed to fully embrace as its candidate and was seemingly hoping that he wouldn’t win because even many Republicans know that he’s woefully unfit and unqualified to be president.



However, because the party was too spineless to stand up to him out of fear of the backlash they might face from his supporters (and Trump, himself), this country will now be forced to endure four years of his incompetence while being mocked and humiliated all over the world.

But it’s fine, I’m going to keep fighting for what I think is right to make this country better and defend the rights for millions of Americans you all constantly seem to try to disenfranchise. I fully plan to use the incompetence of Donald Trump to expose the true pathetic nature that lies at the heart of the Republican party. Every single day I’m going to use him as a prime example — because he’s going to get me plenty of them — as to why we can never let your party win again. Every stupid, hateful, bigoted, prejudiced or ignorant thing he says or does I’m going to embrace as yet another tool I can use to shed even more light on the true nature of conservatism and the GOP. Then when people finally start to truly realize what a mistake electing him was, I’m going to make damn sure they know which party backed him and who the Republicans were who stood behind him no matter how disgusting the things he said were, or how deplorable he behaved.

I will not let the Republican party bring this orange nightmare upon us, then try to wash their hands of him once he gets exposed as the sociopathic con man people like myself knew he was from the very beginning.

So, by all means, celebrate now. The truth is, I’ve never been more proud of not being a Republican than I am at this very moment. I would have much rather not seen Donald Trump win this election, but I am beyond ecstatic that I’m not one of the people who voted for him who’s going to have to defend this moron for the next four years.

Republicans, you wanted Donald Trump, well — you f*cking got him.

Enjoy and — good luck with that. You’re going to need it.

    One of trump” supporters explained that they just wanted to return to a godly time. Make contributions to a clu.

    • Wilma Sosa

      Really! If that was the case then should have have know that one of God’s commandments is loved thy neighbor. Insulting a black president because is black is not godly and this way of behavior what God teaching is about. That’s a cheap lame excuse and one that will backfire. They are going to feel the burn too worst than us for they voted for him, we on the other hand did not. Very proud not have voted for this evil person.

      • Mary Wade

        I’m proud I didn’t, either. But I am surrounded with Georgians who are convinced all demo and liberals are demonic.

      • Wilma Sosa

        How would they know if all demo and liberals are demonic, unless they are judging them based on themselves. It takes one to be one. God loved everyone and he was a Jew. Our religion comes from his teaching and love. No one is perfect. We all make mistake what we learn from those mistake is what will makes us strong or weak. Not allowing certain people the same opportunity as the rest is what’s make this country weak not strong. A house is built from ground up and a solid ground will determine it stand or fall.

      • Mary Wade

        Their churches are preaching it.

      • kbmccarron

        Don’t worry, Mary. There are other Georgians who did not and would never vote for a person of the ilk of Cheeto. We may be hard to find, but we are here. While we may lick our wounds for a while, we will return and we will be stronger. We are those deplorable educated people who think we know everything, but we will figure this out and we will do our very best to limit Cheeto’s term to one only. We can start by making sure David Purdue is not re-elected to the Senate. (oops, make sure you don’t share that strategy – we need the element of surprise!) Make that your goal. It will take a lot of time and I may not live to see it, but eventually Georgia will be blue and return, (need to rethink that word, hmmm, make that) come to its senses.

Especially given that he can’t even be trusted with his OWN TWITTER ACCOUNT.

    What the fuck, America. Seriously. WHAT THE CANDY-COATED FUCK.

    Thanks for coming back, Allen, I was a bit worried yesterday. Guess you had the same trouble processing “President Donald Trump” – the scariest three words since “Hitler Invades Poland”.

    I hope the prosecutions in the Trump U and child rape cases have some cast-iron shit.

    Focus. Endure. Fight. Get through this. And NEVER let it happen EVER AGAIN.

    • only this is, if they do take Trump out we are stuck with Pence and that is even fucking worse!

      • Bonta-kun

        He’d get impeached for trying to force through an unconstitutional theocracy.

  • Left wing logic…

    We can’t brand all Muslims as “terrorists” just because of the minority of troublemakers

    Also left wing logic…

    “Brand all Brexit and Trump supporters as racist xenophobes even though only a minority voted on these issues because they are xenophobic/racist”

      Hey chair force…shut the fuck up.

      • Lol…. thanks for making my point! I’ve served in the United States Army as well… Infantryman (11B) .

        What have you done for your country? Am I supposed to feel embarrassed or less of an American because I served a tour in the United States Air Force?

      • Iana Quesnell

        Don’t you have a gun to go buy or something? I mean really. Are you this sensitive. I thought the whole no more PC was your choice of president’s idea. What have I done for my country? Do you think because I don’t agree with you and that I am not afraid to dish it back at ya that I have not also served my country? Do you think this country’s armed services only belong to conservatives? Or is it because I am a female that you assume so? Is it that I am liberal and not supportive of a dysfunctional president? Your assumptions alone tell me how ignorant and sensitive you might be. As I said before….interesting. And projective as well.

    • Iana Quesnell

      well…the logic has a basis. His supporters, by voting for him, condoned his behavior and his words that came out of his own mouth and twitter across the board. The optics from our perspective maybe be foggy due to the willingness to allow that message to represent them in the world.

      • No the logic does not have any foundational basis. My illustration shows the lefts logical fallacy in that it violates the basic “law of non contradiction” … look it up!

      • Iana Quesnell

        hah….still have the same opinion?

      • Iana Quesnell, do you Troll much or do you have an inferiority complex requiring that you have the last word some 7 or 8 months after the fact? Have a good day and God Bless you.

      • Iana Quesnell

        the anger you people possess is…….interesting. Actually your post from 7 months ago was in my junk mail e-mail. I forgot to delete back then. There would have been no other way for me to find this article again otherwise. I suggest if you don’t want to be responded to, that you don’t respond. Or you can simply drown in your anger and hatred if that suits you. It really doesn’t matter to me. I’m personally happy with how the checks and balances have played and continue to be played out.

      • Thanks once again for proving the point of my original post. Have a good day and God Bless you.

  • knight4444

    Let’s be honest , shall we??? This was the angrty racist lily white vote flexing its muscle!!! This country is so gucking racist,I can’t deal with it anymore!!! Trump isnt just a bigot racist, he’s truly mentally I’ll. I could go literally for days talking about his deeply flawed personality!! But it’s irrelevant!!! The majority of white men loved that pig!!! And white women obviously was cool with him also! As a black american, am I surprised?? Fuck no!!! White people routinely vote against their own best interest!! Hell, LBJ said, the white man will allow a politician to rob him, so long as that politician robs the black man even more!!! I’m thinking trump will set off another civil war!!! This country is beyond fucked!!!!

    • Carolyn Webb

      You bet it is! If the democrats had done a better job of fighting back against vicious smear attacks from the right wing then despicable people like Donald Trump would be where they belong, in the garbage not the White House!

      • knight4444

        Oh @Carolyn, you are 200% correct!! The democratic party is a complete joke!!! Hillary Clinton was the most qualified candidate but her reputation has been so tarnished by 30 years of republican witch hunts and because of some of her own idiotic discissions!!! I’ll give you just one, when Debbie Wasserman Schultz got busted cheating and had to step down!! What did Hillary,’s dumb ass do?? She took Debbie with her on the campaign trail!!!!!! You idiot!!! You should have stayed far away from Schultz!!!! Anyway, the democratic party has moved so far right since the 1970’s that they’re basically republicans of the 1960’s!!!!!! What a joke!!

      • Iana Quesnell

        She made some unwise decisions from our perspective but she has been around for 30 yrs. She is no dummy. Perhaps she unwisely chose loyalty to someone dear to her…idk. We have no idea what we would do in her shoes. I don’t think the people who voted for Trump would have voted for Hillary. The ideologies are so vastly different. And I think the people that didn’t vote were perhaps completely confused about what to believe.

      • Kaytup

        Hard to win when you are running against your opposition, a foreign entity and those who claim to be the voice of the Religious Right while spreading the falsehoods that benefit their main purpose in life. Not to be right and just but to be “just Right” and to H_ _ _ with America.

    • Kaytup

      Well not all white women fell for his calliope music and climbed on the circus wagon. You can start the list of “Women With Integrity and Morals” here with me. Make room for a long list because I am not alone in this. My ‘sistas’ will not be quiet. You will hear from them often.

  • Callum Zen

    People are so stupid. Killary had all of NATO on defcon 2 for nuclear war. Trump saved us. For all you saying the country is now fucked That Russian codename SATAN 2 would have you dead in seconds. So deadset dumb like you have down syndrome. FFS

    • Cynthia Mading

      So we cowtowed to Russians bullying us? Great. Where’s all that tough guy rhetoric now?

      • Callum Zen

        The Russians were not bullying the US. The fact that US army divisions actually setup Anti-airstrike defence = offence systems without telling NATO was a war crime, I am not russian or american but the west cannot keep fuelling russia’s guns

    • Iana Quesnell

      prove it with sources that are accessible and with facts instead of emotion. Barking out accusations though as good as it may feel to you in the moment, does not make it fact. Prove it, show me…and maybe I will listen.

      • Callum Zen

        Do you know how to use the internet?

  • Brad Davis

    I have to ask the author and readers of this article, and website in general, a question. Do any of you think it’s possible, even a little possible, that Donald Trump won because white, middle class working Americans are sick and tired of people like YOU calling them “knuckle dragging” racists and homophobes? That’s what you just generalized 60 million people as.

    No? Ok then. Carry on and continue your march into irrelevancy.

    • Guy Hopkins

      As a white working class American… I couldn’t be more disgusted with Trump being elected and the racism that helped put him there.

      • Brad Davis

        Are some of Trump voters racist? Sure. There will always be racist people in the country. They represent a tiny and shrinking fraction of the electorate.

        The collective temper tantrum we have seen on display from the left, primarily the arrogance of white college students, this week has been nothing short of a national embarrassment. Typical leftist hypocrisy.

        Grow up and accept it. As long as you’re living in the United States, for at least the next 4 years, Donald Trump is your president.

      • Guy Hopkins

        And the massive amount of hate crimes that have been recorded in the last few days? How do you address that? I don’t support violent protest but when people protest peacefully (Kapernick as an example) that isn’t okay either. The right spent 8 years protesting Obama right down to working to ensure anything he did was blocked. Get ready for protests from the left against Trump cause they aren’t going to stop. Personally I dont consider myself left or right cause right now the whole system disgusts me. It wont be four years of Trump though… he’ll get impeached or resign and then the actual nightmare who is Pence will begin. Understand that in order for your opinion to be respected you have to respect others… that includes protest as long as it isn’t violent.

      • Iana Quesnell

        And of course you want to label it as a temper tantrum, because you’d prefer to be patronizing than unifying, which makes sense why you would vote for Trump. We are having a great time uniting and energizing ourselves in the name of our unity, in the name of what we see as the principles of our country, while the right continues, even after a win, to be divisive and petty. Words matter. If your president elect understood that, if your principles made room for that, then we wouldn’t feel like we had to get out on the street and denounce not just him but the message that his voters made by condoning his behavior when the elected him. But I like to issue my sincere congratulations to you on your victory. Enjoy the feeling of the win.

      • Iana Quesnell

        hmmm. That millions have gotten into the streets and denounced this guy may be our only social saving grace. I for one am proud to be among the ones that claim him as “not my president” least I smear my own conscience with his foul methods of energizing a tiny and shrinking fraction of the electorate. I will be able to look myself in the mirror today and everyday for the next four years and beyond because I stood with the popular vote and refused to acknowledge a person who waves his arms about making public fun of a disabled person.

      • Mark Nichols

        Unless he irritates the intelligence community enough to get the JFK treatment. Except for the national mourning, flags-at-half-staff treatment. There’d be more dancing in the streets than anyone would ever have expected.

      • xomed

        A tiny and shrinking fraction of the electorate? Racist in this country are not shrinking in numbers just the opposite, And that clown will never be my president. I refuse to follow a con man, who really should be in prison. The only national embarrassment is Trump and the morons who voted for him. The world Is already laughing

      • purple_tiger

        Sadly, it is not that tiny fraction. Everybody I know voted for Trump, they did it because they hate somebody. And believe Trump will help to get rid of that people. And, yes, they all ok economically. We do grow up and do except that half of the country makes their choices based on racism and hate.

  • Sandra P.

    Please, please read this and help spread the word. We need to wake up every American who doesn’t fully comprehend what we just elected for our president. Too many Americans don’t believe Trump actually means what he said he will do as president. Make no mistake, Trump has blatantly shown us and directly told us EXACTLY who he is, what he is, and what he will do as president. TRUMP WILL LEAD THIS COUNTRY AS AN AUTOCRAT. Too many Americans are in denial and are rationalizing, because confronting the truth is too terrifying. He is absolutely a dangerous threat to our democracy, and he has brazenly told us so.

    Excerpt from this article by Masha Gessen:

    Rule #1: Believe the autocrat. He means what he says. Whenever you find yourself thinking, or hear others claiming, that he is exaggerating, that is our innate tendency to reach for a rationalization. This will happen often: humans seem to have evolved to practice denial when confronted publicly with the unacceptable. Back in the 1930s, The New York Times assured its readers that Hitler’s anti-Semitism was all posture.”

    A
    friend recently shared a 2013 article on her Facebook page from Allen Clifton
    called, “Introducing Republicanity, the Real Religion Conservatives
    Worship.” That’s what drug me down to this
    cesspool. Reading his recent blog entry, I can see Clifton’s childish name-calling
    antics haven’t improved over the last three years. And from the comments section, I ascertain both
    of his readers share an IQ.

    Below
    is my response to his 2013 post (I figured a three-year-old post wouldn’t get
    much attention plus it is as relevant today as it would have been then).

    If
    the author, Allen Clifton, just wanted to attack Conservatives, I’d let it go. His
    opinion of other people matters zero to me (because he matters zero to me.) But
    Clifton invoked the name of Jesus to shore up his irrational, erroneous, and
    seditious positions. He displays classic attributes of a Progressive. He is
    smug, prone to emotional responses, resistant to healthy discussion, and is
    unshackled by facts. He’s using a nasty tactic from similar lowbrow,
    aggressive, bullies like Saul Alinsky called ridicule (Alinsky’s rule #5).
    Clifton offers no facts to back up his allegations. He asserts his negative
    accusations while looking down his long, pointed, wooden nose with such spite
    that no one would dare respond. Clifton stands up a straw man (with false
    attributes) so he can burn him down.

    As a Christian Conservative, let me clear a few things up. First, I’ll point
    out the obvious irony. Clifton is stereotyping those like me – to argue that
    it’s wrong to stereotype groups of people! You want to talk about hypocrisy?

    Second, let’s break down the term Christian Conservative to understand what it
    means because it’s composed of two words, each with specific meaning that come
    together to describe someone’s beliefs. A Christian is someone who has a
    personal a relationship with Jesus, the Son of God. Jesus commands us to “Love
    the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your
    mind.” And to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matt 22:36-40) Ask yourself,
    to whom was Jesus speaking? He was teaching His followers (the Church) to love
    God and care for one another. See how that works? Caring for people is a task
    for YOU, your CHURCH, and your community – it’s not the role of gov’t. “Then He
    said to them, ‘Therefore give back to Caesar (the gov’t) the things that are
    Caesar’s (taxes), and to God the things that are God’s (people).’” (Matt 22:21,
    Mark 12:17, Luke 20:25 – recorded three times! It must be important to make the
    distinction).

    Next, Conservatives are those who believe a federal gov’t should be limited
    (restricted) in power over the people. They believe the gov’t should not have
    the power to compel one group of people to surrender their wealth and personal
    beliefs to an all-powerful, man-led gov’t so “those who know better” can
    redistribute assets in a manner that is “equal” or to force the people to
    accept those things which are immoral. Think about it. How would you like your
    savings account to be split up with your siblings, cousins, and other relatives
    – not by your choosing but by some outside influence who determines what’s
    “fair” while keeping a sizable chunk for himself? Would you like to be forced
    to cover your face and not speak in the presence of men because of a gov’t law?
    Your wealth, your beliefs, surrendered to an oppressive gov’t.

    So you see, dear reader, a Christian Conservative loves others and believes in
    personal responsibility, not gov’t responsibility, to care for others – not the
    hate that Clifton attributes to us. We understand man can pervert the gifts of
    God, like sex, marriage, or free will so that they become harmful or even
    deadly. We possess the intellectual acuity to look at gov’t programs that are
    intended to help the poor and needy and evaluate their effectiveness and
    eliminate the ones that don’t work or those that have a harmful effect. We
    love, not hate Muslims, and want them to come to know Jesus. We empathize with
    immigrants who want to come to the land of opportunity. We also believe
    entering the country illegally is a bad first-start. We have the psychological maturity
    to know the difference between doing what “feels” good and doing what “is”
    good.

    And finally, let me prove Allen Clifton is a cerebral midget. According to
    Clifton, if Jesus didn’t address a topic (homosexuality, abortion, etc.) then
    it’s A-okay. Jesus didn’t mention necrophilia or bestiality either so…using
    Clifton’s rationale, sex with a corpse or an animal is acceptable in God’s
    eyes? Do you think that is true?

    The most dangerous thing Clifton believes is this, “You don’t have to be a
    Christian to believe in the values for which Christianity stands. Which is one
    of the reasons why I call myself a Christian.” One doesn’t become a Christian
    because he/she agrees with nice values. That’s the same rationale behind
    works-based religions. Here is what defines a Christian and the ONLY WAY to
    Heaven: If you truly understand you are already condemned to Hell for your sins
    and, “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your
    heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 9:10)

    Clifton, you’re an agitator and you’re filled with lies. Stop spreading your hate.

    Next, Conservatives are those who believe a federal gov’t should be limited
    (restricted) in power over the people. They believe the gov’t should not have
    the power to compel one group of people to surrender their wealth and personal beliefs to an all-powerful, man-led gov’t so “those who know better” can redistribute assets in a manner that is “equal” or to force the people to
    accept those things which are immoral. Think about it. How would you like your savings account to be split up with your siblings, cousins, and other relatives – not by your choosing but by some outside influence who determines what’s “fair” while keeping a sizable chunk for himself? Would you like to be forced to cover your face and not speak in the presence of men because of a gov’t law? Your wealth, your beliefs, surrendered to an oppressive gov’t.

    So you see, dear reader, a Christian Conservative loves others and believes in personal responsibility, not gov’t responsibility, to care for others – not the
    hate that Clifton attributes to us. We understand man can pervert the gifts of
    God, like sex, marriage, or free will so that they become harmful or even
    deadly. We possess the intellectual acuity to look at gov’t programs that are
    intended to help the poor and needy and evaluate their effectiveness and
    eliminate the ones that don’t work or those that have a harmful effect. We
    love, not hate Muslims, and want them to come to know Jesus. We empathize with immigrants who want to come to the land of opportunity. We also believe entering the country illegally is a bad first-start. We have the psychological maturity to know the difference between doing what “feels” good and doing what “is” good.

    And finally, let me prove Allen Clifton is a cerebral midget. According to
    Clifton, if Jesus didn’t address a topic (homosexuality, abortion, etc.) then
    it’s A-okay. Jesus didn’t mention necrophilia or bestiality either so…using
    Clifton’s rationale, sex with a corpse or an animal is acceptable in God’s
    eyes? Do you think that is true?

    The most dangerous thing Clifton believes is this, “You don’t have to be a
    Christian to believe in the values for which Christianity stands. Which is one
    of the reasons why I call myself a Christian.” One doesn’t become a Christian
    because he/she agrees with nice values. That’s the same rationale behind
    works-based religions. Here is what defines a Christian and the ONLY WAY to Heaven: If you truly understand you are already condemned to Hell for your sins and, “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 9:10)

    Clifton, you’re an agitator and you’re filled with lies. Stop spreading your hate.

    So if the GOP was unaffected by the unmitigated disaster that was W Bush, what makes you think that Trump is going to be any worse, or that they will learn anything from a disastrous POTUS? That’s the whole point of the cheap labor con philosophy: constantly complain about how incompetent and harmful the government is, and then get elected to prove it.

    One can only hope that things will go so far off the rails in the next 4 years that it will actually be made a war crime for a political party to ever do anything like this again. Years from now, Indiana Jones’ movie rivals won’t be wearing swastikas, they’ll be shown wearing elephant symbols.

    Thanks for your great insight, I personally am wondering how he won the election in Key states. I noticed the margins were small enough in those States by 1% give or take . Now what are the odds of that happening? I would say the election was rigged based on those numbers, but it is only my speculation and opinion. But what are the odds?
